65m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An exquisite climb that culminates in a breathtaking finale at the very top of the crag. Start just right of a low, overhung niche.
1) 4b, 22m. Take the line of left-trending flakes to a small corner groove and climb this to a ledge and good belay. The pitch can be climbed direct, passing the overhung niche on its right at HVS 5a.
2) 4a, 14m. On the right is a blank-looking slab, climb the slab rightwards on good small holds to a huge flake. Scramble behind it to a good ledge and belay on its opposite side.
3) 5a, 30m. Move up big ledges to where the rock steepens. Climb steep cracks heading for a black stain in an overlap above. Pull over the overlap, peg, and then step left before climbing up slightly right to easier territory. Layback up the exposed, leaning cracks in the headwall to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The peg on the crux of P3 is now broken off and missing - note there is good gear available next to it. Please do not replace - the agreed policy for West Penwith is no new fixed gear and let old gear rust in peace.

Pitch 2 and 3 - Found the crux middle section of the last pitch pretty intense for VS - the gear around the broken off peg isnt that easy to arrange and the difficulties are quite sustained. The last section with the layback flakes is a total joy. I've done plenty of easier pitches of HVS 5a and never done any VS 5a as tricky as this. Incredible pitch, just be prepared to do battle...

Exquisite is right! Thankfully the only remnants of the earlier rain were some dampness right at the back of some cracks. Jack made a mega pitch of the first two, leaving me the top one. A damn fine pitch, takes good gear the whole way up - I was able to get a small wire in near the broken peg to protect the crux better. Fantastic varied climbing, probably a new favourite at Bosigran!

I lead pitch 1 and 2 in one- nice climbing. Very slow progress with group of 3 in front of us so feeling confident and relaxed while waiting on belay below p3. Leo eventually set off but quickly reached the crux (peg) and refused to move- Apparently there was no gear....Queue at belay was now getting excessive. Two guys on the E1 decided to intervene and went up the pitch right behind him. Encouraging/ discouraging words didn't work. Passed up mini cam- still not enough to get him moving. Eventually they clipped a cam below him so he ran out of excuses and had to get it done. I enjoyed seconding- crux easy compared to a tiring topout! Probably spent about 3 hours on that belay ledge. Entertaining way to pass a sunny afternoon but maybe group behind us didn't agree..

with Leo H
leopolian 15/Apr/17 AltLd O/S

Freaking fantastic! Tough and pretty unrelenting at the top. Spent an age psyching myself up for the cruxy move at half height using the side pull. Someone came and passed up a small cam for me to use which eventually made me get a move on... Think I can still claim the onsight...

We crossed over pitches between Doorpost and Little Brown Jug. After starting LBJ, the top pitch was blocked by a climbing team struggling with the crux, so we continued to top out on Doorpost. Shaun led those 2 pitches. After that we combined the bottom pitch of Doorpost (which I led) with the top pitch of LBJ (led by Shaun), so did all the pitches in the end.

with Shaun
CurlyStevo ?/May/13 Lead

lead and did pitches 1 & 2 only (which are VS 4c IMO).... I'd have to ageree this is HVS without the peg also, the only other good gear available either blocks the good hand hold or is at foot level before you start moving up to do the 5a move (not what you expect for VS 5a IMO). The reason we didn't complete more pitches is we backed off from the crux! Too early in the season for bold 5a moves!

Expected the crux to be the overhanging layback, but that was easy. 25 year wait to climb this route. While at 1st belay a girl leading 2nd pitch of Doorpost peeled off while topping out the second pitch - upside, she hit her back back up and finished the lead, running into the 3rd pitch to the top. Freaked me out, I put in an extra few runners.

First time I've ever placed gear on the 2nd! whoever does the second pitch should be aware it has no vertical component, the belay is just on the other side of the protrusion along the same ledge as the first belay. 3rd pitch is hard and scary but absolutely amazing.

Really great climb. Lead the first and third pitches. The first was a bit runout. On the third pitch placed a nut just under the dodgy rusty peg. Thought about not clipping the peg as it looked in bad condition...but did...and then took a fall! Foot popped, fell on peg and it held! Wasn't expecting the fall and wouldn't expect it to hold. Leaving the third pitch was tricky as well... Great route though.

Fond memories of this. I may take a hammer with me next time I go to Bosi. There's no reason not to remove that peg now. It was in atrocious shape seven years ago. I can see no reason for replacing it once removed, either. Hey, it might even leave a nice scar for a nut placement.

One of the most memorable ascents I've done in a howling gale. On one of the horizontal jams high up, with a friend in one had, the wind picked me up and I was led horizontal in the stream for a good 10s. Fortunately, the jam was good.

I think i lead pitch 2. Goi definately led pitch 3 as his feet were blown off the crag as he was placing a cam at the top. He held it with one hand. Placed the Cam, then got his feet back on.
